You can leave the PATS intact still, AND the car will be alarmed....

The 'run' already has a relay...a latch relay. And the accessory switch has a relay as well. A latch relay doesn't require constant power to stay closed...it's magnetic. It only needs a pulse to get the desired output.

focuson03 the only problem i forsee with it is that you're essentially remote starting the car with the push button, in which case you can use a standard 1100F DEI bypass module, or the pill type 555f bypass. however that's not the problem i see, how would you keep the car running without putting the key in the "run" position?? with all of DEI systems, they have the normal brake shutdown as well as over-rev and timed shut downs, it's physically impossible to bypass all of the safety shutdowns. on and BTW, the PATS sensor needs to be VERY close to the key for it to pick anything up from it.

WuNgUnSVT I'll try to get a 'how-to' made with pic's once I have all the parts assembled

hondaluver o ok that is very interesting let us know how it turns out...and pics maybe?

WuNgUnSVT The remote start relay pack as it was meant to be used...but with the push button tapped into the white/blue wire on the H1 harness (on the Viper 791 anyways)...

And no, not the aux button per se, but rather have an aux channel function programmed to start when the car fires, and that is hooked into the 'run' latch...
